Signature Aviation has opened its newly constructed private aviation facility at Birmingham airport in the UK. The opening marks the full revival of Signature Birmingham following a flood affecting its previous 1930s era terminal building.

The entirely new site represents Birmingham’s newest and best-appointed FBO facility, featuring a 222 sqm building replete with traveller lounge space, refreshment area and a passenger security screening checkpoint. The terminal also includes a dedicated pilots' lounge and an electric vehicle charging station. Furthermore, Signature Birmingham will continue to offer the consistent, expert line service for which it is renowned for visiting aircraft.

“Signature rapidly mobilised to operate from a temporary facility immediately following the damage to our previous FBO; however, this opening solidifies our ongoing commitment to our customers and to Birmingham airport as we look to the future,” says Signature EMEA managing director John-Angus Smith. “We are thankful for the support of Birmingham airport in helping to re-establish Signature’s presence at the airport.”

“The newly built FBO in Birmingham reflects the resilience of our team and the importance of this location within our EMEA network,” adds area director UK Daniel Myles. “General aviation continues to be a commercial driver to both the airport and Birmingham city, and we look forward to greeting attendees of the upcoming Commonwealth Games and Women’s UEFA Football Championship this summer.”

Construction of the new facility took 12 weeks, with interior fit and finishing taking an additional four weeks.
